Skip to comments.WikiLeaks: Interpol issues wanted notice for Julian Assange
Posted on 11/30/2010 2:56:48 PM PST by La Enchiladita
The WikiLeaks founder, Julian Assange, is tonight facing growing legal problems around the world, with the US announcing that it was investigating whether he had violated its espionage laws.
Assange's details were also added to Interpol's worldwide wanted list. Dated 30 November, the entry reads: "sex crimes" and says the warrant has been issued by the international public prosecution office in Gothenburg, Sweden. "If you have any information contact your national or local police." It reads: "Wanted: Assange, Julian Paul," and gives his birthplace as Townsville, Australia.
Friends said earlier that Assange was in a buoyant mood, however, despite the palpable fury emanating from Washington over the decision by WikiLeaks to start publishing more than a quarter of a million mainly classified US cables. He was said to be at a secret location somewhere outside London, along with fellow hackers and WikiLeaks enthusiasts.

You can find his Interpol wanted notice here:
Interpol will need to ask the Russians for the location of Assange’s remains...
Sweden, of all places, may be the ones to put this creep out of business???
That is, if he loses at Russian roulette...
Hmmm . maybe he’s the ghost of Jim Morrison
Interpol still headed by that Clintonoid whose name I can’t recall, anyone know?
I guess the banks about to be outed talked to Bambi.
I am hoping the Russians find him first.
The picture was not available so I'll replace it.....
I hope he enjoys his fifteen minutes, and whatever's left of his all-too-brief life.
He's pissed off practically every nation on the planet, and there's a 100% chance that one of them is going to get to him before any police agency does.
He looks just like Andy Warhol
Perhaps they can arrange a Somali boating party for him.
I think he’s a suicidal megalomaniac, and just wants to take down as much and as many with him.
Doesn't he just wish that Sweden was his biggest headache. I think the Russians are a far bigger "headache" for this guy.
A day late and a cable short. -E01
Nope. “We let him go. In Siberia.”
I don't think this arrogant uber-lib ever intended to commit suicide by black op. I doubt that he ever stopped to consider that the sort of stuff you see in James Bond movies actually happens in real life.
He's fatally naive, and will soon pay a price for angering some of the world's most deadly regimes.
He can live free in Equador. Punishment enough.
I don’t understand why most people here hate this guy. He’s exposing the governments unsavory deeds and thus helping to shrink the government which is what most conservatives want, right?
Personally I hope at the very least this will teach the government to be a little more careful in protecting classified material. Hell if this guy got all of this information just imagine what kind of stuff other governments are extracting from classified servers across the fruited plain. I would also hope that this would get rid of some of the PC crap we’ve been feed about the “war on terrorism” but I kind of doubt that will happen.
Call the Power Puff Girls. He’s probably staying at Mojo Jojo’s place.
Swedish prosecutors have issued an international and European arrest warrant (EAW) for him in connection with rape allegations.
What an upstanding guy this one is/s. But, to some evil minded people he is a hero (well, I guess some thought Hitler was a hero too) Scum of the earth. I hope he rots in solitary confinement without a computer within a 10 mile radius.
You're being sarcastic, right? Either that, or you're a RonPaulbutt. If you don't like the U.S. of A., buddy, get out.
I'd rather enjoy the Schadenfreudic glee of ASSange being shut down by a rogue Jester, and about to be really shut down by Interpol.
If he truly goes after banks he'll be begging the Swedes for protective custody within a week...
While I despise the guy's motives in doing so--bringing about suffering and embarrassment for the sake of his own ego--I tend to agree that he is exposing much of what needs to be brought to light and stopped cold.
On the other hand, it's funny to picture him sweating bullets as he realizes that the Spetsnaz may soon deliver his head to the Hague. Just the head.
GO AWAY YOU DAMN LIBERAL. THE GUY ASSANGE IS NOT SO BAD> REALLY WHAT HAVE YOU BEEN SMOKING. OR IS IT POSSIBLE YOU HAVE YOUR HEAD UP OBAMA’S BACKSIDE> LETS BAN THIS IDIOT FROM FR ONCE AND FOR ALL>
Well, if he has pissed off the Israeli State...Mossad will nail him...
Whats with the sex crimes situation? I don’t know anything about that .
Assange was a hero as long as he was attacking GEORGE BUSH.
Now, he is an ENEMY OF THE STATE because he made DEMOCRATS look bad. that can not be allowed.
He is hated because he hates America. We have systems in place for the release of information . All information need not be made available at all times. Who the hell is he to be the decider of all that? He needs to be eliminated along with the traitor(s) who fed him info.
-I tend to agree that he is exposing much of what needs to be brought to light and stopped cold.
and who the f*ck is he to decide that ? HUH ?
I would love to see that picture on billboards across the country.
Sounds like part the missing 18 minutes of the nixon tapes......
Sex crimes? Not wise to F**k the Russians.
For “Sex Crimes” I see. Interpol posted this today. It certainly looks like state “officials” are thrashing around looking to somehow get him.
When he started to threaten a big bank then it was over. The bankers are the ones truly running the show. I do not agree with the unbridled release of Government communications. I think there has to be some consideration given to the consequences of such a release. In many cases though I do agree with it- if it exposes lies and fraud, but puts no ones life in danger. I also do not agree with exposing normal operational information that just mucks everything up, but does not involve lies and fraud or illegal activity.
Well the Banker info is none of that for sure, And I wish that He had just released that info while he had the chance. OK-Filter out anything that is not relevant or that would put innocent customers at risk in anyway. Those guys really do need to be exposed. Our traditional freedom depends on it.
The guy raped 2 women in Sweden...no telling how many other women he has done this to. 2 of them had the guts to come forward.
And if he's not nailed by the Mossad, would it be a sign that he has pleased them?
The Jerk-in-Chief could`nt have cared less as long as military secrets and the names and locations of CIA agents were being disclosed. But now that his junta might be embarrassed, he`s suddenly concerned.

"Assange strongly denies any wrongdoing.
Mark Stephens, his London-based lawyer, has described the allegations as "false and without basis", adding that they amount to persecution as part of a cynical smear campaign.
Nonetheless, the Swedes appear determined to force Assange back to Sweden for questioning. .. "Julian Assange has never been charged by Swedish prosecutors. He is formally wanted as a witness," Stephens told...."
“But Assange’s most pressing headache is Sweden.”
Doesn’t he just wish that Sweden was his biggest headache. I think the Russians are a far bigger “headache” for this guy.

I agree. He might be able to make a plea bargain if he rats out BO for BO’s involvement in the WikiLeaks.
What gender is the alleged victim, I wonder?
Who gave Assange the data other than the military documents from Bradley Manning? How did he obtain private information about a bank and pharmaceutical companies?
Outside of traveling to and camping out on remote Wrangell Island, they are going to find this guy one way or another.
“I dont understand why most people here hate this guy.”
Partly it is because there is both good and bad about what he is doing. Depending on what he releases.
I personally have a tempered feeling about him. I see that he is doing some unjust harm, and I don’t like that. But I also see your argument which is also true much of the time, and it that regard he is doing a good thing.
Most people you have to understand are sheeple. They cannot weigh the good and the bad when it is being pounded in there ear that it is all bad. It was decided here by most to consider only the bad and to take this guy out without prejudice. Only those people can’t see they are empowering the all powerful big brother in the process. They are taking out there only chance to see through the veil of propaganda and protect there own freedom. And that is the power of sheepelism. One goes Bahhhh, and all the rest follow without thought.
What Wilkileaks really needed to do was to reform its policies so that it did not cross certain lines. That would have been a better debate to decide what those lines are instead of cutting off in full our only chance to see behind the curtain of Oz.
So welcome to “1984” or the “Brave New World”- or whatever you want to call it. In the end it is us who enabled it.
The system is only as strong as it’s weakest link. If one person has acess to 250,000 confidential items, something is wrong with the system.
There are between 1 and 3 million people who have access to this Confidential information. Are all of these people really necessary to have such clearance?
This case actually could serve to make changes for the better.....I am not holding my breath. It is far easier to issue an arrest warrant.
The govt never learns.....nor the sheeple who fall for this nonsense.
Perhaps the Russians will put the screws to him and film him ratting out BO. One can dream...
Actually, I wouldn't give a plugged nickel for this guy's life right now. I wonder if InTrade is taking positions on his live/die odds right now?
